You have the Superpowers! Save the World

We are about to run out of water in a few decades. Let it be Amazon’s rainforests or Australia; wildlife’s existence has succumbed itself to the fire. Despite a plethora of countries that haven’t had a glimpse of solar power yet, their only source, i.e., fossil fuels, will exhaust by 2044. So what are we planning to combat such a horrifying future we are about to get? Would this mark the end of humanity?

Let it be any crisis; some basic measures in conjunction with innovative measures are a must. The world is exposed to the superfluity of problems. If not taken care of on both universal and personal level, the doom’s day is nowhere far.

 

  1. Extreme Poverty

More than 10% of the world population or 700 million people are surviving on less than US$1.90 a day. Eight percent of the total employed workers and their families, too, are the prey of extreme poverty.

To battle this, the first United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goals (UNSDG) suggests implementing nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all by 2030. Significant mobilization of resources, building the resilience of the poor, and accelerating investment in poverty are the only options left now. This should be supplemented with our voluntarily help to our local poor and needy.

 

  1. Health Crisis

The current pandemic has made the most developed countries kneel before it. But before this pandemic, not every day had a ray of sunshine. In sub-Saharan areas, four out of five children below five years of age died. Merely half of the women in developing regions receive the recommended amount of health care they need.

You can do your part by choosing the health-centric government parties. Also, In order to fight this, UNSDG’s third goal proposes achieving universal health coverage by 2030. By ensuring worldwide access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, it aims at reducing deaths owing to less knowledge about this. Strengthening the capacity of all countries, in particular developing countries, for early warning, risk reduction, and management of national and global health risks, is what would do the trick.

 

  1. Dismal Educational Infrastructure

Access to education is a fundamental right. But it is quite astonishing that 57 million primary age children remain out of school. Not only this, but more than 600 million youth also lack basic mathematics and literacy skills.

To get a solution to this, the fourth goal of UNSDG thrusts on gender equality in terms of access to educational resources. Not to overlook, it wants to ensure adequate resources to disables and poverty-stricken regions. We all, too, should do our part by participating in educating underprivileged students.

 

  1. Worsening Climate conditions

2019 was the hottest year ever recorded in the history of humankind. Global emissions have almost doubled as compared to the last decade, and noticeable changes in Antarctica are some serious threats we are facing right now.

In response, UNSDG recommends integrating climate change measures into national policies, strategies, and planning. Adding, it aspires to promote adopting environment-friendly methods in industries. Some necessary actions on a personal level like car-pooling, less use of air-conditioners won’t be a less-weighed step.
